A black pickup truck failed to yield while turning left onto St. George Boulevard, causing a westbound Hyundai sedan to smash into it shortly after 3 p.m, said St. George Police Officer Michael Christensen.

There were no injuries, but both vehicles were so severely damaged, they needed to be towed from the scene.

“The at-fault vehicle was turning on a blinking yellow light — a yellow arrow,” Christensen said. “The (Hyundai) had a green light, and the person turning left turned in front of it.”

A citation was issued to the driver of the pickup truck for failing to yield.

St. George Fire Department also responded to the scene.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.
